Google AdSense Running in Email Newsletters
Google AdSense, according to a DigitalPoint thread covered by Barry Schwartz, seems to be letting select publishers serve Google AdSense ads in newsletters and mass commercial emailings. I’ve tried (as a test) placing Google AdSense in Constant Contact powered emails and the ads were served and targeted almost perfectly.
So, if Google AdSense does work in HTML emails and Google has figured out ways to adjust AdSense click costs via Smart Pricing, why not just allow all email publishers the right to run AdSense ads?
Possibly because email spam is more out in the open on the Internet than AdSense powered Splogs and the public backlash against Google Ads in spam mails could be crippling.
On the other hand, a trusted email publisher working with the AdSense team to throw out some targeted mailings could lead to a new revenue stream for both Google and their Premium Publisher mail partners.
Oh yes, Google’s normal stance on AdSense in emails?
No Google ad or Google search box may be displayed on any domain parking websites, pop-ups, pop-unders, or in any email.
